UNDATED-- More heavy rain and severe weather has made it back to Texoma today. Because of that several watches and warnings are in place for most of the area. 7 News is also starting to get reports of some minor street flooding in the area. Remember never to drive into areas covered in water no matter how deep you believe the water to be.
Rains have saturated the ground and filled most creeks and small ponds. Cache Creek is currently running at 23.6 feet and is expected to reach 28 feet by 7:00 P.M. tonight. Flood stage is 21 feet. 7 News is checking local lake levels and we will pass that information on as soon as we get it.
Additional rainfall amounts of an inch to two inches could be possible in the next 24 hours. Two systems heading toward Texoma are bringing strong storms and heavy rain. The first one will come from southern Texas, providing a chance for thunderstorms mainly in north Texas. Then, a much stronger system moving out from the southern Rockies will arrive this afternoon, spreading the possibility of strong to severe storms into all of Texoma.
We have a slight risk for severe storms with the threat of damaging winds, golf ball size hail and isolated tornadoes.
